Unlike most remodeling projects, most homeowners don’t get hyped about basement remodeling, mostly because a basement is one of those areas that doesn’t inspire creativity. Even finished basements tend to have that drab feel, the one that makes you want to stay away at all costs. However, by not utilizing your basement, you are wasting hundreds of square feet of your home. Take advantage of all the space your home has to offer, and consider implementing one of these creative yet simple basement design plans:
Turn Your Basement Into a Gym
If you’re someone who loves to workout but who just doesn’t have the time to between work and running the kids to and from soccer practice, consider installing an in-home gym. Not sure where to put all that equipment? Put it in the basement! All you really need to do is add some paint and bright lights before adding the equipment, but if you really want to take your home gym to the next level, consider adding a sauna. Your basement may just become your secret retreat.
Make it a Game Room
Have you and your spouse talked about getting a pool table but have always held off because you weren’t sure where to put it? Well, now you have the space! Give your basement a face lift with a basement remodeling project, then invest in that pool table, foosball table and even an old-school pinball machine to make it a room of non-stop fun.
Convert it Into an Entertainment Space
If you don’t want to mar your carefully decorated living room with a giant TV screen, but if you enjoy a nice picture as much as the next person, consider turning your basement into a cinema. An entertainment room is one that the whole family can enjoy!
Basement remodels don’t have to be boring. Consider the above basement remodeling plans to give your basement a useful and fun face lift.
